Spruce Street Residents and Neighbors Petition
We are residents on or around Spruce Street. For many decades, our corridor was peaceful as cars and trucks could not turn directly onto Spruce from Christopher Columbus Boulevard. When the City of Philadelphia allowed these turns to be possible (without community engagement or adequate study), the car and truck traffic onto Spruce increased substantially, harming the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists and our quality of life. We request of Councilman Squilla that the former, longtime arrangement be reinstated: Prohibit cars and trucks on Christopher Columbus Boulevard from turning onto Spruce.
